On this Saturday, I am remembering those who served that day (the brave first responders), those who lost their lives and those who have lost loved ones.
For those of you who follow my blog, you know that I live in New Jersey. Many of my family still live in NY. I clearly remember that morning. It was a morning not unlike today. Sunny, crisp and cool. My 5 year old was playing and my 6th month old was busy napping. I went to turn on Regis and couldn't believe my eyes as we all watched the second plane hit. I remember I called my husband at work and then my father (neither of them knew what was happening at the time).
We know two NYC Firefighters (a relative and one friend) and people that helped in the days after. It is still a sad and sometimes traumatic time to remember. As I was surfing the net to find a pic for this post, I could barely look at the real pics of that day . I skimmed until I found this pic that I have seen many times before. It is a small comfort to me to see and I hope it comforts others.
On this day, remember and GOD BLESS AMERICA.
Pink is for HEARTS and we remember WITH LOVE.
